How to remove a wrong password

So I've created a remote and connect via SSH. First time connecting Sourcetree asked for a password, but i've entered the wrong one. Now Sourcetree keeps returning with "Too many authentication failures". The password does not show up in "Options > Authentication > passwords" where other passwords do show. So I can;t remove or change it. 

So how can I change it now?

I've solved it by uninstalling Sourcetree and removing the files from local app data (on Windows 10).

Still, this is not very convenient.

Also, the password is still not showing up in "Options > Authentication" whereas before these passwords did show up there.

I'm connecting to a remote via ssh://username@ using a password.
